or stroke

In many, P.A.D. is a silent disease, causing no recognizable symptoms. People with P.A.D. may have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • "Claudication" -- fatigue, heaviness, tiredness or cramping in the leg muscles (calf, thigh or buttocks) that occurs during activity such as walking and goes away with rest.
  • Foot or toe pain at rest that often disturbs sleep
  • Skin wounds or ulcers on the feet or toes that are slow to heal (or that do not heal for 8 to 12 weeks).

"Women with or at risk for heart disease need to be aware of the symptoms and serious consequences of P.A.D. Through our efforts with the P.A.D. Coalition we aim to inform and empower women to be aware of P.A.D. and encourage them to share information about the disease with other women," said Lisa Tate, Chief Executive Officer, WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease.

To increase public awareness of P.A.D., the P.A.D. Coalition and WomenHeart are partnering to support the Stay in Circulation: Take Steps to Learn About P.A.D campaign, a nationwide effort developed in partnership with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.

A new patient brochure on women and P.A.D. is now available at www.padcoalition.org and www.womenheart.org or by calling 1-866-PAD-INFO (1-866-723-4636). Take the P.A.D. Quiz at www.padcoalition.org/quiz.
